Forum: feature_films Subject: Two Items for Video-Cellar to check out

First, is 1950's British series "The Adventures of Robin Hood". As British copyright law for TV usually lasts about 50 years, would I be correct to assume the Episodes from before 1959 are public domain? Lum says it may upload more if they are.
Second, "The Ray Bolger Show". Sitcom, produced directly on film from the 1950's. I might be able to get a Christmas-themed episode. Is it PD or not?

Robin Hood also showed in the US from 1955 to 1959 so I believe it is also covered under US copyright law.

From what I've herd only the first season is PD and the rest have yet to enter PD status.

I'm not 100% sure about this but it is what I've heard.

Great series.

I believe the Ray Bolger show, aka "Where's Raymond" is either not under copyright, or wasn't registered.

I Can't seem to find anything for the show on Copyright.gov when searching under both titles so, maybe they never registered it.
